The Bystronic glass Group, Germany,has received a large multimillion Swiss francs order from Saudi Arabia, according to an April 6 release. As 2009 drew to a close, Richard Jakob and Fahad Al-Harbi, chairman of the Wajhat Glass & Aluminium Factory as well as vice chairman and CEO of the Al Harbi Holding, finalized the deal with the system’s installation scheduled to begin in April 2010.

“Bystronic glass will be supplying all the equipment for a new production hall to be built in the Arabian desert,”saidRichard Jakob, CEO, Bystronic glass Group, in the release. “The hall will be handed over to the customer for immediate occupancy - a project of this magnitude is both exceptional and fascinating.”

The order also incorporates a cutting and sorting system, a fully-automated insulating glass line, handling systems along with lines for production of laminated safety glass and tempered glass, according to the release. This will be the first installation of its kind where the system is directly connected to the furnace and insulating glass line with an expansion option for the sorting system to include other processes. Until now, the Wajhat Glass & Aluminium Factory, a company of the Saudi Marble & Granite Factory Co., has concentrated on processing marble and granite. The acquisition of the Bystronic glass systems marks their entrance into the glass industry.
